I would love to hear the aud of the entire show if it's as good sounding as what's here.

I think for the year this is a great audience recording. This show is also pretty killer. Listen to set two first perhaps, because for one the Greatest, Ramble + Half Step>Dew are really something. Deal is high quality stuff in late '72. Big Railroad and Black Throated Wind should be heard.

Sounds like a decent show, but the recording makes it too hard a listen.

Bertha and Mexicali suffer some memory loss, but a great recording otherwise.

This is a below average show, bumped up to four stars for this amazing sequence. The jam between Trucking and The Other One is outstanding. Guess how many other times they played an Other One>Half Step. I'll tell you how many times: zero.

Subject: I WAS AT THIS SHOW!
I was at this show (Third Row..then in the orchestra pit!)with a hot little number who was the love of my life at the time. A great show, very representative of the Dead at this point in their career.This hall is very echo-y. Band complained of some PA problems at beginning of concert--guitars sounded very chimey but a little flat, too--and Keith's piano was only heard intermittently in the hall, all eventually corrected. Superior concert repertory over the 10/31/71 show a year earlier. During "Tuning" Bob advises ppl standing on the orchestra pit piano riser to get off (have you no respect for a musical instrument, he asked?)so ppl behind can see the stage. This was at stage left, the culprits included my GF and roommate, hah! Dead roadcrew quickly assisted (not too gently, either)those folks getting off the riser. A full house that nite. Same venue where on 11/22/68 (my first rock concert--the Dead!)only 250 ppl showed up. My father complained that I was never the same after that.

Subject: Show 3 / Sound 4(aud) and 3(sbd)
The second set of this show is where the action is, the Bear-recorded aud portion is spectacular. The first sbd portion is clear and clean, decent balance but a little flat and light on the bass. The second sbd portion is many gens down the line and rather worse for the wear, it loses a lot of clarity. The entire second set circulates as a Bear-aud but for some reason the sbd fills in much of the second half of set II; I think the Bear-aud would have better served the purpose there. The playing is tight and clean and typical of this period and the Other One is fantastic. An average show and an average recording but there is a lot to entice any fan of 1972.

Haven't listened to more than a few songs but this is far superior in sound quality than the other 2 10.27.72's.
